The word तबीयत means “health” in Hindi.  It is a feminine noun, any adjectives that modify it must be changed to work with a feminine noun.  That is why मेरी is used to refer to “My health” instead of मेरा.  (For more information on this point, you can look at the episode on Adjective gender agreement – मेरा or मेरी.)
